LONDON (AP) — British police have confirmed that an ex-soldier who escaped from prison while awaiting trial on terrorism charges was spotted at a busy roundabout in south London soon after his escape. The Metropolitan Police’s counter-terror commander Dominic Murphy told Sky News on Friday that Daniel Abed Khalife was spotted Wednesday a little more than a mile away from Wandsworth Prison, soon after he fled prison strapped to the bottom of a delivery lorry. Murphy also said that police are offering up to 20,000 pounds ($25,000) for information that “directly leads to the arrest and capture” of Khalife. Murphy confirmed that police are still focusing their search on the London area.
